What readers are saying...

"In Putting Diversity to Work, the authors highlight the importance of a holistic and simultaneous development for the stakeholders, leaders, and individuals in order to bring multiple benefits to the organization, communities and the planet. They combine diversity theory, research data, and application of skill development in a balanced and succinct manner to allow the readers to get to the heart of the matter quickly. It's a "must read" for anyone who either deals with or is concerned about diversity issues in the ever-changing dynamics of the global village."

"Putting Diversity to Work is a valuable addition to the growing body of literature about an important topic. The book intelligently addresses many complex issues both managers and organizations must overcome in order to achieve the goal of the book's title. The combination of sound ideas and clear writing make for a useable and practical document. Most importantly, this book will help managers confront their self-development challenges around diversity. I highly recommend it for everyone interested in being part of the solution for this still unfinished business of our society."
